Six months ago, a mystery contaminant escaped from the abandoned
warfare laboratory in Fort Detrick, Maryland. It quickly
spread around the world, turning everyone it infected into a mindless
zombie. Exactly what causes this infection is and how it works is
unknown, or at
least unknown to the public at large. The government has set up
quarantine zones to protect the few remaining uninfected populations,
but if they know anything else, they aren't telling anyone. Your job is
to set out on a journey to discover the origins of this disease and
find a cure before the zombies can destroy what remains of society.
-On this journey, you will be confronted with various choices and math
problems. Depending on what you decide to do and whether you answer the
math questions correctly, you can meet with glorious success or deadly
-The different adventures will be aligned with the Common Core State
Standards for mathematics, at least as much as they can be and still
fit the story.
-If you need any help with the problems, we recommend setting up a free
account with Khan Academy
to get online help.
